(2) Authorize any department employee or police officer to seize and recover any evidence of the registration, title, license or permit suspended or canceled.

(3) If evidence of the suspended or canceled registration, title, license or permit is not recovered, refuse to conduct any further transactions with the person until the fee charged under this section is paid.
